Let Me Introduce Myself
Hi! I’d like to introduce myself. As you well may know, my name is Cameron Hinkle. What you may not know is that Cameron is not my first name; David, is my first name! I am named after my dad, and for some reason they decided that having that as my first name was a good idea. It wasn’t. Ya’ll, it is so confusing to people when I have to put my legal first name on paper but introduce myself as Cameron. *note to future self – name your kid what you’re going to call them! *
I grew up in a small town in Mississippi, named Carthage. It’s about 35 miles north of Jackson, the Capitol. Population, less than 5,000. I have always been the more creative type. No one knows where I really get that from. My dad is an avid outdoorsman. In fact, he owns his own hunting supply store, he has for 28 years now. My mom has been an at home mother for as long as I can remember. That’s the way it has always been. My little sister is 4 and a half years younger than I am but has always been my best little friend. Golly gee we’ve done some crazy things over the years, haha.
Okay back to me. I graduated high school in 2011 as valedictorian of my graduating class (let’s not get crazy, there were 18 graduates LOL) I went to the local community college, as one does, and started in nursing, MISTAKE! I did, however, complete three semesters. That counts for something, right? So I switched to business. To keep my sane, I was in theatre class, and was the main character in two plays and one musical. To be completely honest, I’ve always wanted to be an actor. I still to this day wish I had gone into acting. I guess it isn’t too late, though? We will see we will see haha.
I left community college after 1.5 years and took a position as a pharmacy technician with Walgreens. I thought maybe I should go into pharmacy… Again, WRONG! I enrolled in Mississippi State University for marketing. After a few semesters, I changed my major to fashion. Not having any idea where I was heading with that, I switched majors AGAIN! Okay, so I have a hard time deciding on life choices… Sue me! Although, this time, it was a hit! I chose photography! I had always been into photography but never really thought about making it a full-time career. I transferred to College of Charleston after a while, because um, Charleston, hello! I graduated a year later and moved to Florida. Seemed like a good idea. Sunshine, beaches, you name it! Hated it. Nashville? I thought. Sure! Why not? So, to Nashvegas I moved. That was in January of 2018. I wanted to focus all of my energy on my photography. After a few months, I met Kyle, whom I am sure you all know is a lifestyle blogger here in Nashville. He had reached out to collaborate together on a shoot. We shot, talked and connected. This was fun! I decided.
During that time, I had met a photographers, Alaina and Jordan. Alaina shot some pictures of me because I wanted to use it to introduce myself on social media. I posted the photo and it was a hit it seemed. I then started posting a few more of myself and interacting with more people on Instagram. This was fun! I decided this was totally something I wanted to do. I could be creative, while also traveling and sharing my life with others!
So here we are. One year later and loving it!
That’s it from me. If you still have a question about me or what I am up to lemme know! I love chatting with you guys.
Until next time!
